After Daryl Janmaat played so well for Newcastle in central defense on Saturday against Arsenal, it has also coincided with him being recalled to the Holland squad for the upcoming games against Turkey and Spain.
Krul and Janmaat in action for Holland
Daryl was dropped from the Holland squad earlier this season, but he’s been one of Newcastle’s best players and showed on Saturday against Arsenal he’s as good at center-back as he is at right back.
With Daryl being in such good form, it’s a good bet he will play maybe both games for Holland, and of course there’s the danger that he could be injured.
With Newcastle’s luck this season with injuries that could happen.
Anyway looking on the bright side (have you noticed how that’s becoming more difficult at Newcastle?) – Daryl is already an improved player this season, and he is very popular with the Newcastle fans.
He also shows good character and leadership abilities, and he’s always available to talk to the press after embarrassing defeats.
So much so he could make a very good future captain for Newcastle.
Let’s hope Daryl stays fit so he can line up in central defense against Sunderland a week on Sunday – a game we must not lose and should be winning.
And it wouldn’t surprise us too much if Louis van Gaal comes in for Janmaat in the summer, and tries to take him to the Red Devils.
All it would take is a good offer and Mike Ashley would do the sums – and then quickly sell him.
